Overview

Sprawling across the northern region of Captiva Island, South Seas Island resort “feels as lush as its name suggests” (Fodor’s). Two and a half miles of pristine white-sand beaches hug this 330-acre nature preserve, offering a quiet, exclusive oasis just an hour’s drive from Fort Myers.

Trolley shuttles ensure guests can access the numerous on-site dining outlets and amenities. Accommodations vary across the grounds, from marina-side hotel rooms to quaint cottages, villas and spacious private homes.

Before taking part in the resort’s various on-site activities, head to the seashore to hunt for unique souvenirs on the property’s superb shell-hunting sands. Resident manatees and dolphins can often be spotted splashing in the nearby waters, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more than just shells.

Tee up at the nine-hole golf course, book a treatment at the 4,000-square-foot state-of-the-art spa or take the kids to the family interactive center. Water sports, tennis courts, bikes and a massive pool complex are also available for guests wishing to stay active.

The resort is huge. You need to take the shuttle to get from one end to the other. Plenty for kids to do. Pools are great. Beach is gorgeous especially at sunset. Foosball, ping pong, darts and other games are scattered throughout the resort. Food at The Point was great. Drinks at Attitudes on Sunset beach are tasty but pricey. S’mores on the beach was a nice treat. Last is Off site Mexican at Captiva Cantina was outstanding.

It was a nice stay for the value. Beautiful maintained resort. The only drawback is that everything is so spread out so you definitely need a car, bike or golf cart.

The staff at the resort is very nice, but rooms are kept poorly.

The room were very dirty and also had roaches. It’s a shame they don’t keep the rooms cleaned to a higher quality.

Less-desirable of the Bayside Villas (1BR/2B) and I still had a nice view. Staff was phenomenal! Water pressure low but, understandably so due to Island's proximity to utility services. Enjoyment increased the longer I stayed. FOUR DAYS just wasn't enough time to thoroughly enjoy the property and its surroundings. (So much to do and see.)
Other Comments
My visit here made me realize just what I have in my own backyard/on the east coast of Florida, close to the beach. Make me another offer like the last one, which included deep discount on accommodations and daily credit, and I will gladly make the five-hour drive southwest. Excellent service and friendly guests! Thank you!

Great staff. Clean grounds. The resort was pretty full which made the main pool impossible to find chairs. It’s summer so expected but have been to the resort when it was less crowded and liked it more. The room was nice. The travelzoo price is significantly less that advertised resort price so it makes it a trip worth taking.
